It's amazing what happens when you treat everyone the same.

At Word of Life, we seek to welcome and care for everyone with the same sincerity and warmth, because we believe everyone matters to Jesus. At Word of Life, no matter your background, you are welcome into family.

We invite you to join us.

coronavirus updates

We are a people of hope, even in times of great uncertainty. The last week has given us as Christians great hesitancy regarding the near future. As a church we wanted to update both members and visitors of certain precautions and realities related to current coronavirus mandates and warnings:

*Because of the current recommendations of the CDC and other government entities, we are suspending all in-person church services on both Wednesdays and Sundays, along with dinners, Bible Study and Sunday School associated with those gatherings. We will be streaming our 8:30am and 10:45am services at their normal times on Sundays on our Facebook page as well as on YouTube. You can stream our services on Facebook this Sunday at 8:30am or 10:45am at facebook.com/wolnaperville, or on YouTube by going to tiny.cc/wolchurch, or if you go to YouTube directly, simply search "Word of Life Naperville" to find us.

*We have extended our cleaning protocols beyond normal procedures, including the extra cleaning of surfaces with multiple contact points, the extra-sanitizing of pens that are on each bulletin, and offering hand sanitizer in multiple locations throughout the church.

*Word of Life Preschool is closed until September 2020, following the announcement of Illinois school closures for the rest of this academic year. We are saddened by the circumstances and we pray that all our preschool families are doing well. The teachers will continue to reach out in different ways over these next few weeks, and if there are any questions of comments, including if you would like information about preschool enrollment for Fall 2020, please contact our Preschool Director by email at director@wordoflife.net.


If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact Pastor Schoon directly by call or text at 630.355.9670. We are trying to stay up to date on current mandates and best practices during the foreseeable future. We will pass along any further updates as they become available.

most recent sermon

Our new sermon series, The Sabbath, starts on March 8th. Join us as we talk about the many facets of the Sabbath, from an Old Testament understanding of rest and worship, to Jesus' words about being "Lord of the Sabbath." If you're struggling with rest or the impact of weekly church, we invite you to come and hear how it fits together.
